Then even the up front fee should be double. McAtee has only played 46 games in league football, ffs. Age difference should make little difference - 23 or 25.

What do you mean double? You mean double the 150k up-front fee for McAtee?

I think 300k plus add-ons would be a fair asking price for Harry. Whether anyone will pay that remains to be seen!

zero...loan striker.

Every club in L1 and L2 are looking for a striker that can score goals, no club is willing to sell for cheap so we will be looking non league or loan, thats the way it is at the moment.

Many clubs, even in L2, can easily afford a £300k up front fee if those sort of striker are out there, Crawley, Stockport, Bradford, ourselves, Orient, Crewe, Doncaster and Mansfield could probably all afford a fee of that size so the competition would be huge if that sort of player were available.

I think a loan player will be nearer the mark at this stage of the season.

Two more years for Ellis - would leave him one year short of a testimonial, which must have not happened for a while!

meh

I don't wish him ill. He had a good season last season, but aside from that he's had injuries disrupting his career throughout

he only signed a new one in November

I like Ellis.

I do wonder if we're holding him back a bit actually. I know he's had injuries, but if he played every week in midfield somewhere he might fulfil his potential.

At the moment, he's viewed here as a utility player rather than an essential one.

Last season he played more minutes than anyone else, and had more starts than he'd had in the previous six seasons combined. It's quite hard to shed the "pre-2021" Iandolo from our views of him, but I'd be surprised if he wasn't our first choice left wing back for much of this season. I know people want him to play CM, but the way our squad is built I can't see that being the main place he pitches up.

Always had a lot of time for Iandolo although still not certain where his best position is and that seems to be the opinion of the different managers he has played under. Never going to be a firm fans favourite but is the type of player that every club needs in that he can be slotted into various positions (apart from 'keeper and centre half) and will not look too out of place.

Iandolo is a great player and a great servant to the club. Has played in some really awful sides and still fucking tried even when other players had given up.

Not since the Thompson not-twins have we had such a good servant.

no doubting his commitment to the club.

He's played <20 have a season on average though. Not his fault, but value for money?

As long as nobody tried to play him as orthodox left back he's useful. When fit.

When was the last testimonial match? I remember watching Swindon draw 2-2 with Hibernian in August 1990, that was a John Trollope testimonial. I can't think of any after that but happy to be provide wrong.
